Volume 27 in the Norwegian Forei gn Policy Studies series. "Norway is the only one of the four applicants of1970 which rejected EEC membership by a popular referendum. The decision w ill have far-reaching consequences both for Norway and the EEC. This book is an attempt to understand that decision of 1972 and to examine its effectson Norwegian-EEC relations in the following five years. The first part cov ers the period up to September 1972. Beginning with a description of the Norwegian economy, politics and foreign policy in 1969, it analyses post-war Norwegian attitudes towards Europe and European integration and the way theNordek debate of 1968-70 already revealed many of the themes and political positions of the subsequent referendum campaign. It then charts the intera cting course of domestic politics, membership negotiations and referendum campaign. [...] Part two covers the years 1972-77, its chapters describing in turn how the immediate post-referendum years of fast rising living standards and oil exploitation cushioned Norwegians economicall and psychologically from the full effects of their decision; how the Labour and Conservativeparties, defeated over the EEC, went on to win the post-referendum struggl e for control of the Political system; Norway';s relations with the EEC in fisheries questions, the main source of friction in these years; and the reasons why Labour's 'active European policy' failed to live up to its name."- from the rear cover.

The work of a group of researchers from Canada, Norway, and the United States, it examines the implications of common market integration, privatized resource management, and small business development policies for fishery-dependant communities in terms of long-term sustainability and participatory democracy. The book is brokeninto three sections: an examination of the economic and institutional hist ory of the fisheries in Norway and Atlantic Canada, a study of the regulatory regimes used in the fisheries of these two regions, and an analysis of reactions in three communities, two in Canada [Sambro, Nova Scotia and Fogo Island, Newfoundland] and one in Norway [Bugoynes], to the decline and collapse of fish stocks. Comparative, multidisciplinary, and multinational in approach, it is a major contribution to the literature on fishing regulations, the role of the state, and resource development in the North Atlantic." -from the dustjacket.
